    Brewer calls for special election while Pearce says hes staying to fight

    Gov. Jan Brewer made it official today and ordered a special election for the recall of Senate President Russell Pearce to take place Nov. 8.
    We have all heard about the Wisconsin recall elections, but this one has been under the radar until today. A recall against the Senate President has been successful in Arizona, and he will face a recall election on November 8. Pearce is the author of the racist Arizona law which required police officers to profile all Hispanics, assuming that any of them might be an illegal alien.

    Fear makes people do very strange things. It is ironic that Franklin Roosevelt, who said "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself", ordered Japanese Americans to be sent to concentration camps during WWII. Yesterday, it was fear of Yellow people. Today, it is fear of Brown people. Some things never change, especially racism. But a good recall, successful or not, is at least a good start. And in a bat**** crazy state like Arizona, it is a pleasant surprise.

    It wasn't a racist law. It was having the State do what the Fed's failed to do.

    Oh and Brewer didn't "Call for a special election" so much as she was forced, by law to announce one due to the required number of recall petition signatures being signed.

    Re: Brewer calls for special election while Pearce says hes staying to fight

    Vecchio is either missing the point or attempting to deflect it. Pearce is a racist. He has spoken at white supremist gatherings. SB 1070 is largely regarded by many Arizonans as being a racist solution to the border problem. Pearce's law has cost the state millions of dollars. Pearce also crafted the state law that prohibits Hispanic Studies classes in Tucson high schools because he said such classes promoted racism and were anti-American.

    What Vecchio failed to mention or doesn't know is that Pearce is the first legislator in the history of Arizona to be recalled. Signatures to petition his recall more than doubled the number required!

    Prove it Dana. Prove that the Arizona law requires profiling. For once, I wish you all would argue your opposition to what the law actually says, not what you've been told it says. It's absolute racially neutral and any argument that it will result in racial profiling is nothing but an assumption.

    I will strongly disagree with your comment that SB1070 is a racist bill. I don't always agree with Pearce. Todate their is one person who may decide to run against him the the recall election. It is funny that the ones who pushed for the recall didn't have anyone in the dugout ready to go to bat. Time will tell, but won't be surprised that Pearce gets elected again. His district is strong conservative republican.

    Care to show the data or define what you mean by "many" Arizonans. I happen to live in Arizona, support SB1070 and the majority still do. I would not make too much of the signatures. Needing 7K+ in his district is not a large number. Guess we will see in Nov if the majority of his district wants him gone.

    Pearce has yet to loose any election he has been in.
    by the way, I am not in his district.

    Well, I must say, you all have made a compelling argument for why the AZ law is racist. No, wait, nobody has made any argument, therefore, it's fair to conclude, none can be made and the law is actually racially neutral.

    Nobody has, therefore nobody can. Good think most people know better than to believe that kinda faulty logic.

    If the law's so blatantly and obviously racist, then pointing out how it is should be awfully easy. So easy, in fact, that the failure to do so means something in and of itself.
